HH2 DESIGN DRIVERS
Ball trajectory is vital. A high trajectory (ballooning) leaves the player short, and a low (flat) trajectory gives the player too much roll, overshooting the green. The better ball strike is one that launches the ball a few degrees higher than the loft of the head and carries 80% of the distance to the target and then drops at a 50 to 55 degree angle to the target surface with virtually a soft impact and very little roll, allowing the player to achieve their desired distance with accuracy and confidence with every strike.
Updated for 2018:
HYBRID HEATER2 DESIGN THEORY:
Increase shaft weight over the original 80-gram model
Higher kick point to keep the ball from ballooning to accommodate USGA groove rules
Incorporate “Tip to Butt Aspect Ratio” (TBAR) to stabilize shaft integrity for maximum accuracy and “FEEL”.
The Hybrid Heater 2 takes the original Hybrid Heater to the next level and allows the player to achieve their desired distance with accuracy and confidence with every strike. Penley shafts are designed to improve the players ball striking ability.
Kick (Bend) Point: Mid/High
Ball Flight: Mid/Low
WHO SHOULD PURCHASE THE HH2?
A player that is looking for a standalone Hybrid (or rescue) shaft and who is endeavoring to improve their ball striking ability, carrying distance and accuracy.
The Hybrid Heater2 was developed with a higher kick point to keep the ball from ballooning to accommodate USGA groove rules. If you want a hybrid shaft that gives you the best ball trajectory and avoiding ballooning or overshooting the green, then the Hybrid Heater2 is for you.
